Does phone insurance cover misplaced or stolen phones?



I appear to have lost my phone. If it doesn't turn up by tomorrow I'll have to do something about it.

I had an epic 4G. Are they likely to try to replace it with some lower grade POS?

I think insurance covers damages like water or it being destroyed, not losing it. I'd call your provider and ask though.

I know when we got ours, the guy told us it doesn't matter if you bring in the phone in a ziploc bag and it's in 100 pieces, they'll replace it. But that was it, you had to at least have it. It didn't cover it if it was missing or stolen. That was through Best Buy, I don't know where yours is from....

i know the insurance version offers covers lost/stolen, but I think you may need a police report or something.

This. They cover stolen phones but not lost ones and you need a police report.

Insurance doesn't cover dumbasses who can't keep track of their stuff.

Well you left in the cab and someone obviously took it right? I am assuming you called the cab company and asked for it? Sounds stolen to me!

you're not gonna get it back. I misplace shite all the time & never get it back via housekeeping or lost & found. I think it's a perk of cleaning.

Who is your service provider?

If ATT then you won't have a problem. They'll just charge 50 to your next bill and you will have a new phone by wednesday

I have left phones in cabs probably 4 or 5 times and have gotten a couple back. See what happens. If you get it back then you are good, if not someone stole it and you can file a report.

As long as he has insurance through the company, he doesn't need to file a police report. Trust me.

They don't know that. Call the police, say it was taken out of your car in driveway and shazam, you gotcha report.
